Thanks again for the excellent accomodation, food and service. We will return again when in Penrith. We have already recommended the guesthouse to colleagues. The local shopping and restaurants are within walking distance and Carlisle is great for some retail therapy! The local award winning chip shop is definately worth a visit. Great food at Brooklands also

Me and my wife stayed here recently after taking part in Born Survivor so needed somewhere comfortable to stay after a gruelling challenge and The Brooklands Guest house didn't disappoint! The staff were at the door to welcome us with great advice on the area and we had a lovely room at the back of the hotel with a decent... More

Another overnight stay at this fabulous guest house. We were treated to coffee and muffin on arrival and of course the amazing breakfasts. Always welcoming Leon again excelled. Could do with a pillow upgrade but otherwise a fantastic stay

An excellent nights sleep. Very comfortable. Big ticks for shower, wifi, iPod/iphone dock and best of all breakfast. Great work Leon. Thoroughly recommend it for what ever reason you happen to be in Penrith. We had to check in late after doing a gig and couldn't have been looked after better. Only warning: Leon's welcoming handshake can break bones! ;)

This is such a fabulous B &B that when ever we are working in Penrith this is the place to stay. Lovely hotel, fantastic hospitality from Leon and staff, fab rooms and excellent food. Most definitely would recommend Brooklands to anybody staying for either business or pleasure.

We stopped at Penrith for a couple of nights en route to Glasgow. We'd booked the room months before goingbut before leaving had realised it might be a slightly different holiday than usual for us, as I was now 6 months pregnant. We got in touch with Brooklands to ask if there was a DVD player in the room, explaining... More

I have stayed at the excellent Brooklands a few times now as I work in Penrith and it is always great. The welcome is warm, the rooms are lovely and very comfortable (even the single which is perfectly fine for me) and the breakfast is superb. Just lovely.

Stayed here for two nights and can only say it was excellent and the best B&B I have stayed in. The four poster room was lovely. The comfort, attention to detail, quality of fixtures an fittings was superb. Leon made us very welcome and the breakfast was excellent. I was here on business but I'll be back again soon. Highly...

Have stayed here 3-4 times before. Home from home. Warm welcome. Great food. Handy for town. Lovely place. High standard at a great price. I would highly recommend this quality establishment. Pity I can't stay all week!

We spent 1 night here on the way home from the Scottish highlands, it's an absolute gem of a hotel, will always be my first choice for future trips to the area. Our double room was perfect, the decor of the whole establishment is beautiful.
